With Texans around the state struggling to survive during the unprecedented winter storms, current and former Texas Longhorns have stepped up on Thursday to take care of their communities.

In Austin, current women’s basketball standout forward Charli Collier helped address food shortages and hunger across the city by teaming with Roppolo’s Pizzeria to provide personal pizzas for those in need.

Earlier in the day, former Texas safety Michael Huff, who has been on staff as a quality control assistant since 2016, bought 1,000 tacos from longtime East Austin taco joint Juan in a Million on Thursday morning.

But Huff wasn’t done, helping arrange more meals in his hometown of Irving.

The two combined with Chik-Fil-A and Cheddars to provide those 200 meals.

In Houston, former Texas defensive end Charles Omenihu, now contributing with the Houston Texans, donated money to feed struggling families.
